Google Mashup Editor

As announced during the Developer Day, Google released a Mashup Editor as invitation-only experiment. (You can try signing up to get an alert if you’re allowed in.) I’m still waiting for my invitation, but Google says the “Google Mashup Editor (GME) is an interactive development environment in which you edit, compile, test, and manage your applications. The editor includes a built-in reference guide to all GME tags and attributes.”

Google also explains that after you created a mashup, “you can publish it using Google’s infrastructure and we’ll serve it for you on the subdomain You don’t need to set up a server and hosting, or a database or authentication for your users – we do it all for you.” Using a domain for this service might be a security consideration – running user code on also exposes the all-powerful Google Account cookie to abuse.

Some people I spoke to at the Developer Day compared this tool to feed masher Yahoo Pipes, though the best way to find out is probably to play around with the tool yourself – if you have already been invited, please post your comments & screenshots.

I’ve included the Mashup Editor blog that’s been released along with this tool at the Google’s blogs n’ more page.
